Triangle ProblemLaw of Sines/Cosines does not work
Posted:
Jul 15, 2013 2:42 PM



I need help solving for any other information about the red triangle. I only know the variables listed on the diagram. Because I have such limited information, I am unable to use the Law of Cosines or the Law of Sines to solve this triangle (angle is obtuse, so the Law of Sines is out, and the SSA combination that I have produces no solution with the Law of Cosines). If I can get any one other piece of information, I can find out everything else I need easily.
Other information: a > b
